Schrader McMillan, Anita and Burton, Mark (2009) From parent education to collective action: 'childrearing with love' in post-war Guatemala. Journal of community and applied psychology, 19 (3). pp. 198-211. ISSN 1052-9284
The paper discusses the implementation and effect of group-based parenting workshops oriented by the principles of liberation psychology in a low-income, hispanicized community in Guatemala City. The objective of this initiative was not only to improve outcomes in the parent-child relationship, but to galvanize the formation of community-based support groups that could have multiple ends. The theoretical foundations of the project are introduced, before illustrating their practical application. Sixteen months post-intervention, largely positive effects were being sustained in parent child relations. The project was also successful in generating social action through the formation of grass-roots women's organizations.
